The Above & Beyond Academy provides leadership and talent development courses and workshops, utilizing our years of work with corporate diversity and inclusion solutions and experience within executive education. Our solutions are specifically targeted at critical moments in the leadership pipeline, to ensure companies can retain, develop and inspire their high-potential talents.
These have all been created with a focus on the skillset needed for the future workplace, where agility, adaptivity, and inclusivity are key.
Gender diversity on executive teams is strongly correlated with profitability and value creation. McKinsey & Co.’s 2018 Delivering through Diversity study of more than 1,000 companies in 12 countries found a correlation between diversity at the executive level and not just profitability but also value creation.
Those companies in the top quartile for gender diversity were 27% more likely to outperform their national industry average in terms of economic profit.
Above & Beyond Academy has a strong track record in aiding large organisations in retaining, developing and promoting, especially their female talents, in order to achieve their diversity targets in a strategic way.
Our leadership and talent development programs specifically targeted at critical moments in the leadership pipeline. This ensures companies retain, develop and advance their high-potential talents.
Working with Headspring Executive Development, a joint venture of IE Business School and the Financial Times, we have created three programs that each address key moments in the talent pipeline. Our flagship 12-month Advanced Leadership Program develops your top female talents with executive potential; the virtual Fast-Track Program accelerates talents who have just taken their first management role and the tailormade Future-Ready Leadership program onboards your senior leadership team to the key principles of diversity, sustainability and digitalization.
Through a unique combination of programs, workshops and tools, the Above & Beyond Academy provides a range of solutions that can effectively reach your entire organisation: from strengthening your talent pipeline from management to executive level though leadership programs, to onboarding your whole organization to the business imperative of inclusive culture through online adaptive learning courses.
